Dear Assurance Professional,
In the ever-changing Middle East business environment,
encountering risk is inevitable. The ability to manage these
increasingly significant risks now represents the difference
between a thriving organisation and one that is floundering
in a sea of losses due to improper risk management.

Many businesses in the region have realised that the


outcomes of both fortunate and unfortunate unexpected
events can be preemptively molded into desired results. To
act on this realisation, though, requires extensive knowledge
of risk management tools and techniques. This is exactly
what you will find at Strategic Risk Management.

It is important to understand that poorly informed or


improperly executed risk management can mean disaster
of incredible proportions. Conversely, a well trained and
cognizant risk management team will enable your company
to maintain and strengthen your edge over your competitors.

Moreover, studies have shown that financial risk is only


the ‘tip of the iceberg’, as nearly 80% of key risks are not
insurable. This critical 80% must be ‘insured’ internally with
a capable risk management team.

Risk management has been catapulted from being a useful


tool to becoming the very pulse of the organisation and the
yardstick by which its management is judged. The key is to
recognise that risk is not something that should be avoided
– a risk is often an opportunity in disguise.

IIR’s Strategic Risk Management course has been


specially designed to provide you with all the skills and tools
you need to become a successful risk manager. It will show
you how to identify and evaluate risks, as well as how to
overcome them.

Phil Griffiths and I look forward to personally welcoming you


in June.

Yours sincerely,

Keith Parker
Conference Manager

P.S. Register now to gain a competitive edge through


risk management with the internationally recognised
Phil Griffiths!
